ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS WITH QUALITY CONSTRUCTION.
At Wel-Fab, Inc., we provide smart, safe products with an emphasis on sustainability. All of our products use the best available materials, and we lead our industry in developing innovative manufacturing methods that reduce carbon emissions without any sacrifice in durability or functionality.
THE BENEFITS OF ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION
With decades of experience as a metal fabricator, we fully support the use of aluminum for collapsible containers and other military-ready products. Aluminum offers numerous environmental advantages over other materials, and it is often the most cost-efficient option available; it is a strong, light and versatile metal that offers an exceptional return on investment.
Some of the eco-friendly features of our aluminum products:
- Fully Recyclable with Minimal Waste
- Repeated Recycling Does Not Affect Quality
- Low Density and Exceptional Strength
- Light Transport Weight for Improved Fuel Economy and Reduced Emissions
Aluminum’s light transportation weight saves 95 percent of the energy and pollution used to make new aluminum over the lifespan of a collapsible cargo container. In the critical transportation industry, our research in lifecycle modeling has shown the emissions of the entire aluminum industry can be offset by the potential emission savings from the transport sector’s increased use of aluminum by the year 2020.
LOW-VOC POWDER COATING FOR A DURABLE FINISH
Many Wel-Fab, Inc. products also use powder coating, which eliminates volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to prevent a negative effect on air quality. By using powder coating, we avoid the use harmful paints and gases that could pollute the atmosphere.
Powder coating is also a stronger option that paint, as it provides excellent overall durability. The exhaust required in powder coating is lower than the exhaust generated by other methods, and powder coating dramatically reduces energy consumption and air pollution through improved energy efficiency.
By choosing products that use aluminum and powder coating, you can help to reduce your organization’s environmental impact. You also benefit from the substantial advantages of these technologies: aluminum containers save a substantial amount of fuel, and lighter materials are much easier for personnel to handle. Low-VOC powder coating is comparable to paint in terms of looks, but much more durable and energy efficient.
At Wel-Fab, Inc., we are proud to help our clients make environmentally responsible choices. As a leader in our industry, we always use eco-friendly materials in our designs, and our engineers regularly research new ways to reduce emissions while improving the durability and overall quality of our products.
